Cover

Release Day: April 14,2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Series: Book 2 in Six Degrees Series

Synopsis 3

One look, one moment and I was completely defenseless.

One touch, one embrace and I was utterly consumed.

One kiss, one caress and that’s all it took.

One look and thirty-four year old Parker Stone knew his life would never be the same. She called to him unlike anything ever had in his life, sparking an unbridled desire and captivating him completely.

One touch and twenty-eight year old Liz Del Rio wasn’t sure she’d be able to walk away. Experiencing a life full of disappointment and heartache, she wasn’t looking for a relationship, let alone love and all the risks that came with it. Every time life had taught her the same lesson: not to let people in because they always leave and when they leave, it leaves scars upon your soul.

One kiss sealed their fate and they knew they would never be able to live without one another.

Liz and Parker embed themselves into each other’s world. Passion burns bright and fast, but what happens when your lives are connected in ways you could have never imagined?

Secrets from Liz’s past threaten to break not only what they have, but who she is as they learn that once love is etched in stone nothing can make it crumble.

What’s the worst that could happen?

Kaitlyn Parker has no problem being the invisible girl, which is why she finds herself hiding in various cabinets and closets all over her college campus.

Can she overcome her aversion to being noticed? Will he be able grow beyond his self-centered nature? Or, despite their obvious chemistry, will Martin be the one to drive Kaitlyn into the science cabinet of obscurity for good?

Review

5 Pennies

 

EOC Attraction is the best kind of distraction.  It provides escapism (a week in a tropical paradise), a blast from the past (memories from college days gone by), and fantasy (in the form of Martin Sandeke).

Knowing that this was part one of three books, I knew there would be a cliffhanger.  I liken book series to playing with a jack in the box.  You keep turning pages and when you least expect it, the cliffy pops up and startles you.  When the next part comes out, you have to decide if you are going to start turning the crank again.  Fortunately, I received all three parts and read them to glorious completion.

I loved Kaitlyn.  She was smart, shy, and a bit socially awkward.  She took her responsibilities seriously and worked hard for positive outcomes for anything she took on.  Having to shoulder the lion’s share of the burden in her Chemistry class was something she accepted as she preferred not to confront her partner about his lack of participation in certain areas of their work.

But when she became privy to some pretty serious information that could affect him negatively, she stepped up, went outside her comfort zone and made sure he got the message loud and clear, thus saving him from harm.  It was this action that acted as the catalyst to start their more than lab partner relationship.

Kaitlyn’s thoughts on feminism, family and friendship were quite provoking.  After being deemed a “marriage girl” vs. the casual hook up girl, she wasn’t really sure how she felt about it.  Wasn’t it possible to be both?  On a responsible basis of course, but more importantly on her terms?

This story just made me think.  Think back to how things were when I was that age.  Think how I would handle them now if I found myself in a similar situation.  Think about how far women have come in so many areas but that double standards still exist in many more.

Elements of Chemistry – Attraction was a great jump off the starting block for this wonderful trilogy and I urge you to pick up your copy today.

PREOC

Add to GoodreadsEoC-01ExcerptParties?” I may have curled my lip in a miniature sneer.

“Yeah, on the island, at some of the other houses, friends of mine. You know, the usual college scene stuff.”

Usual college scene… just a bunch of billionaires’ kids and their friends. It sounded delightful.

“Yeah, no thanks.” I pulled my eyes from his, inspected the rocks. “I don’t like parties. But don’t let that stop you from going.”

“Parker.”

I sighed, then met his gaze.

“I want you to come.”

“No thank you.”

He ground his teeth. “Kaitlyn, you promised you were going to give this a try.”

“I will…”

Once again he was giving me the severe stare down, likely because my weakly delivered I will didn’t even sound convincing to me.

Managing to swallow around the sudden thickness in my throat, I squared my shoulders so that I was facing him. “Here’s the thing, Sandeke. I am. I am going to give this a try. Despite my worries-”

“What worries?” He sounded exasperated.

I ignored his question, “Despite my worries and reservations, I’m going to give this the good college try. But I don’t even know how to dance. I can tango like a pro, but I don’t do the body wiggle weird thing. And isn’t that what the kids do these days at parties? Dance?”

He lifted an eyebrow at my excuse—obviously unimpressed—and with two fluid strokes moved to join me.

I stiffened, my eyes wide, and backed up a step at his advance. “What- what are you doing?”

“I’m going to teach you how to dance,” he said simply, already on me, reaching for my body.

I stiffened further, feeling unaccountably breathless as his big hands slipped around my waist and settled on my hips and lower back.

“But there- but we- but-”

“Shhh…” he said, pulling me closer. “Relax.”

“Create cold fusion,” I murmured in response, unable to relax and placing my hands nowhere, because placing them anywhere on Martin felt perilous to my wellbeing.

He glanced down at me, his eyebrows in a perplexed V. “What does cold fusion have to do with anything.”

“You tell me to relax, which is impossible. I tell you to create cold fusion, which is impossible.”

His answering smile was crooked. “You can’t relax?”

“No.”

“Why not.”

“You know why not.”

“Well, it might help if you touched me.”

“That will not help.”

“It might.”

“It won’t.”

“Touch me.”

I scowled at his chest, my hands still in the air at my sides. Stupid perfect chest.

“Parker, if we’re going to dance you have to touch me.” He sounded amused and his fingers flexed on my bare skin. I felt the roughened calluses of his palms just before he released my body to grab my hands. He brought them to his shoulders, pressed them there, then returned his own to my hips. I didn’t miss the fact that his hand-placement was now a bit more daring than it had been a moment ago, lower, closer to my bottom.

I swallowed thickly, glaring at my fingers where they touched his perfectly sculpted shoulder.

“Don’t you want to touch me?” he asked, his inflection daring, teasing, but also something else. Something hesitant and uncertain.

I lifted my eyes to his; they were guarded, his smile looked bracing, almost like a grimace, like he was preparing himself for bad news.

I sighed and I knew I sounded resigned and a little pitiful, “Yes…”

His gaze thawed as it dropped to my lips. “Then you should… because I want you to.”

Author Bio

Author-Photo-Penny-Reid-300x300SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).

By day I’m a biomedical researcher with focus on rare diseases. By night I’m a knitter, sewer, lino block carver, fabric printer, soap maker, and general crafter. By the wee hours of the morning or when I’m intoxicated I love to listen to the voices in my head and let them tell me stories. I hope you enjoy their stories.

Excerpt

“Who’s teasing?” I offer him my breasts, caged between my fingers.

“All for you.” “The way your pink nipples tighten for me, I can’t wait to

fuck those beauties.” He limps toward me, the muscles along his torso

flex into rippling planes that temp me to run my hands over his corrugated

abs up to his sculpted shoulders. The moment he touches me, I groan in

pleasure.

“Please,” I plead. Letting go a dark-sounding chuckle, he kneads the skin

over my breasts, thrumming my nipples. “I’ve got something else for you.”

From his pocket, he removes a thin cord of black leather attached to tiny

clamps. I watch as he attaches one clamp to my nipple, then the other,

and I bite my lip from the swelling erotic sensation, tingling within each of

my breasts.

“Ben,” I rasp his name. He bends and licks the tip of his tongue across each

of my peaks, teasing me until jolts of pleasure flare and land between my legs.

I moan hungry sounds, spreading my fingers along his face and arch as he

sucks my nipple into his searing mouth. Raising his head, he kisses a path up

my chest to my neck, then sucks a point that has me melting. “God!” I groan.

“How about an abbreviated tour of the place?” he asks, gifting me with a very

sexy and confident smirk while he tugs me toward the terrace doorway.

“Yes. That would be wonderful.”

My chest squeezes at the flickering pain that slices across his face when he

takes a step on the ankle I’ve hurt. “I’m sorry about your ankle.” He chuckles

darker this time, and there’s a percolating lascivious mirth in his expression.

“Are you really?” “I am. How can I make it up to you? Just tell—”  He presses

one of his fingers to my lips. “Shhh. Don’t you worry. I’ve got plans for you.”

He guides me into his living room, but then pauses as he spreads out his arms.

“East or South?

“I’ll spank your ass until you can’t sit down comfortably for a week, and there won’t be anymore nice, polite f–king tonight. You’ll get what you deserve…my help to compel you to follow my directives.”“You wouldn’t dare!”
“Wouldn’t I? You wanted in on my team, sweetheart.”

Well, I thought I’d heard it all. But I hadn’t.
Coming from the Kennedy clan…you know the ones, I’ve dealt with world class pricks before. But Senator Bennett Stone outclassed them all.

It wasn’t like I could tell him to kiss off…me being naked and in his bed.

See, Bennett and I have history. Not the political kind.
He promised me rough, dark, you’ll beg, hate it, love it, and come back kind of kink.
And damn, the SOB was right.

Seduced By The Senator.
An erotic tale about second chances and a one-in-a-million connection too tempting to ignore. A doorway to decadence…or the road to ruin.

Last campaign stop and things are heating up fast when Senator Stone connects with his newest intern, Xavia or to her close friends she’s known as ‘X’…for a reason.
She’s a Kennedy. He’s a U.S. Senator.
And they’re headed for trouble.

I’ve spent many years crafting stories in my brain. Finally, after the encouragement from those that love and support me the most, I put my first story out by self-publishing in 2013.

That first milestone created a writing monster in me that couldn’t be stopped and filled a void I cannot explain. Each story is a true gift from my heart and a sacrifice from my soul, since I find it difficult to let the characters go.

At home in Texas, my husband and I share our life with children that mean the world to us and include a couple of fur babies. When we aren’t busy watching sports and betting on the game, we are entertaining with friends.

I do have a writing cave, but honestly, most of my work comes from the kitchen, the heartbeat of any home. Since noise doesn’t disturb me too much when writing, I can write and keep the pulse on the family at the same time. And… Possibly enjoy my favorite, sinful treat… Cookie dough!

The writer-reader world is my lifeline. I’m addicted and each time I get a message from a reader, I’m thrilled. There’s quite a few stories planned for the next several months. I’m hoping the readers fall in love with my next series, The Creek Series. A story that is guaranteed to bring out all the emotions.

If you’ve read my books, thank you! It truly means the world.

Synopsis 3Steph


I’ve never been your typical girl. I didn’t grow up in a warm fuzzy family, and emotions weren’t something I needed now. Love has never been something I could wrap my mind around, so why bother? I know what I’m good at. I’m a great friend, have a passion for healing others, and a way with horses. I can be all those things at the same time without ever discussing my own feelings.
Until him.

Lawrence

I’ve always been told I have a way with words. It’s one reason I manage the family business so well. I can wine and dine with the best of them, selling bloodlines and high-priced stallion services over a five-course dinner. I’m able to talk myself into or out of just about anything and anyone.
Until her.

****

Young and carefree, living worlds apart, they indulged in what seemed like the perfect fling.

Until Lawrence decided he wanted more.

Until Steph’s careful world fell apart.

Until they had to decide if love was worth the fight.

Excerpt

Oh good Lord. I didn’t want to get up. My mouth tasted like… something bad. My eyelids were stuck together. I was still wearing my bridesmaid’s dress. And I was warm. Very warm. My brain tried to filter through the night before. The wedding was all it should have been. Full of love. The food had been great, the drinks plentiful. I didn’t think I’d embarrassed myself in any significant way. Hopefully.

 

My mind returned to the present. I blinked rapidly to clear my eyes. I could feel my mascara sticking my lashes together. I started to raise my hands to rub my eyes clear, but one was trapped. Tugging harder, I realized it was trapped under a human. Dear. God. I couldn’t look. The bed shifted and dipped, and my brain registered the alarming fact that I felt skin. A lot of skin. Male skin, so that was comforting. I guessed. Maybe.

 

“Mornin’, sunshine,” drawled out from the form beside me.

 

I shot upright and yanked my arm back. “Lawrence! What the fuck are you doing here?”

 

“Wow. You do not look as good this morning as you did last night.” He rolled over and raised himself on his elbows.

 

My pink paisley comforter fell away from his naked torso to reveal pecs, abs, manliness, and some ink that I didn’t remember from… before. I swallowed hard as I stared, trying to process his terribly offensive words as well as make out what I was seeing. And also figure out what the hell had happened the night before.

My love of books started early, and my mom used to ration my reading time so I didn’t go through them too quickly. I love all things romantic, whether it’s dark or light or silly or dirty, but I really love a happy ending!
